    1. Timothy Wyllie Adam Parfrey Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Love Sex Fear Death: The Inside Story of the Process Church of the Final Judgment book, this is one of the most wanted Timothy Wyllie Adam Parfrey author readers around the world.

    2. True story of a secretive and mysterious cult who preached of doom and the impending apocalypse. It covers traveling the world, building their cult following, dealing with the media, inside stories, and the eventual falling apart. The strings were manipulated from the shadows by a powerful woman named Mary Ann who was only around the most elite members. Rooted in scientology with ex-members and use of e-meters, they were truly another off-shoot wack-job group. They believed in some pretty off th [...]

    3. Love Sex Fear Death: The Inside Story of the Process Church of the Final Judgment goes behind the scenes of an “apocalyptic cult with an attitude.”In the ’60s and ’70s, The Process Church preached the union of Christ and Satan, seducing wayward, occult-inclined hippies into a community that was at once terrifying and inspiring. Timothy Wyllie, then a young architecture student, was one of them. A writer and former art director for The Process magazine, Wyllie shares his story and art in [...]

    4. This book was very enjoyable to me. The main part is a first hand account from one of the original Process members and he is a lot less jaded, negative and cynical about the experience than one would think having been through and leaving a cult. The rest of the book has some other (shorter) recollections and some bits by Robert De Grimston. Then the rest of the book contains some beautiful trippy images from process literature. I would LOVE to get the original magazines or reproductions though I [...]

    5. The Process Church, which started in 1966, was out of step with the times in many ways: the group eschewed drugs and drug use; their priests dressed all in black, with Mendes goats on their robes; they openly worshipped “Jehovah, Christ, Satan and Lucifer”; their logo, a cross between a cross pattée and a swastika, was out of step with the “peace and love” platitudes of the time.Although they never reached the massive popularity of other movements, the cult attracted a small but persist [...]

    6. As I trudged my way through eighty five interminably-paced pages of Timothy Wyllie's oral history of the Process Church, the mantra that ran ticker-tape style across my forehead was, "Where is the Lawrence Wright of The Process?" That author, who has created the most readable and accessible history of Scientology yet, should indeed have a twin brother or something who could put a similar microscope eye on Robert de Grimston and Mary Ann. However, as I reached the end of the multiple short-takes [...]

    7. This is one of the most fascinating books about the cult experience that I have read.I was mainly reading this to be some sort of Satanic Panic completist and it is a cult and hey, satan.OK, so Satan or satan or the devil or whatever. I knew that already, but this is supposed to be THE satanic cult. So, no David Berkowitz and nobody was hanging out with Charles Manson but these self-described cultists lacking a fondness for good ideas (in hindsight), decided it would be awesome to interview him [...]

    8. This was pretty unsatisfying. The largest section of the book was written by Tim Wyllie who was maddeningly impressionistic, for instance describing the Process leader as "a gorgon" he hated on sight, but also fell in love with the same day, without ever saying what it was about her that made him feel this way or telling us that much about what happened between them. The whole narrative went this way, although he did provide a good timeline of the events surrounding the process of the Process. T [...]

    9. A fun read, but even after all the anecdotes, apologies, apologias, and armchair psychoanalysis, I was left feeling as if we were only nibbling around the edges of the story the whole time. I walked away with nearly no idea of this organization's goals and only very hazy pictures of its methods. Reading Robert DeGrimston's rambling pseudo-esoteric texts at the tail end of the book, my suspicion is that beyond the cloaks and medallions there really wasn't much there at all. But we aren't even lef [...]

    10. I am a fan of books on cults. Not sure exactly why. Perhaps it was the Time Magazine article I read when young about the People's Church and Jim Jones or the fact that for many years my parents followed an Indian teacher. I had heard about this group as an early influence on Genesis P. Orridge in an interview and was keeping my eye out for it. Then I discovered the Process Church's beautiful magazines. The pages dedicated to their design are lovely. But what I didn't get, and really wanted, was [...]

    11. A wonderful read for anyone who's always wondered what The Process were all about. Wyllie's contribution, which makes up about half the book, is beautifully written and really conveys the spiritual highs and the terrifying lows of his many years spent in the community. I also enjoyed Genesis P. Orridge's essay on the influence the Process had on him personally and on Temple of Psyckick Youth at large. As if that was not enough, the book has a very nice layout and a lot of great color pictures fr [...]

    12. The book is about the Process Church, a cult that began in the 1960s, became the Foundation Faith, and later Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. The first section of the book is composed of first person accounts of what life was like inside the group, which is not how the media has generally portrayed cults. The group was made up of young people rebelling against society and finding society within the group. This is a good anthropological study and will appeal to those trying to understand social str [...]

    13. Rad title right? Amazing sense of design. The actual Process Church is another story. The shadow leaders behind this movement cherished a murky and cynical view of community and relentlessly exploited the good will of a bunch of idealists. I'm sorry but there is nothing inspiring about this particular cult save their existence in contrast to flower power. That's not enough. Read The Source instead. Not only were those people freaky, they also approached enlightenment in a way that merged their p [...]

    14. A fascinating look at this cult from several insiders. Despite a lot of baseless accusations linking the Process Church of the Final Judgment to Satanism and horrific crimes (Manson and the Son of Sam murders), the real story is far more interesting. Recommended to fans of 60s/70s counterculture, occult groups, and group dynamics.

    15. This book was a helluva lot of fun. You rarely get this kind of level-headed look at the inside of a cult like this, and I'm really grateful. Wyllie demystifies the Process Church and a lot of their evil rep, but there's still enough dark weirdness -- especially in the figure of the cult's mysterious and beautiful guru MaryAnn de Grimston -- to keep you intrigued. Loved it.

    16. With this book I finally figured out why The Process Church is, like, cool and Scientology is, like, a bad Tom Cruise movie (is there such a thing, though?).What DeGrimston and his hag had besides the Alsatians was that FONT.It was one of the ones I used to buy in actual letraset. I'm not giving the name away here as it could inspire others.

    17. Strangely boring, considering the subject matter. Timothy Wylie is not much of a writer unfortunately. This book is worth checking out strictly for the reproductions of the awesome artwork the Process Church created for their various magazines, events, etc. Obviously a huge influence on Throbbing Gristle and Coil etc. in the visual realm.

    18. Interesting account on strange satan-jehova-lucifer-christ worshipping cult from the '60s by one of its core members. They loved german shepherds and later became Best Friends, the largest animal welfare organization in States :)

    19. Memoirs from former cult members. Epilogue by Genesis P"Orridge was actually very readable and pulled it all together, why we are fascinated by Process Church and what we learned.

    20. I wanted to like this a lot more than I did. The cult itself is interesting, and the guy has a fascinating viewpoint, but he isn't a very good writer.
